I recommend the horror story Jonas and the comedies The Chiltern Hundreds and Forty Years On (which is wickedly funny).

Subject: Best Radio Series
I have listened to thousands of hours and hours of most of the OTR radio shows on archive.org and this is the the very best. The stories-fiction, non-fiction are superb and marvelously produced. I have no one favorite because they are all soooooo good. ENJOY!!!!!
Reviewer: karlct - - October 27, 2014
Subject: Quite the treasure trove
Edgar Wallace, HE Bates, John Buchan, Hammond Innes, Bill Knox, Graham Greene, Alan Bennett, Daphne du Maurier, James Follett-- even Henry Cecil, no less! Our unknown benefactor had good taste in his home recording during the 1970s. One can only hope there's more where this came from but, in any event, I for one am very grateful to have these bits of popular culture from a gentler and more leisurely time. (And wouldn't people back in the 70s have been startled by THAT description....)

PS Thanks too to the previous reviewer for fleshing out the listings.
